Everyone has a picture of an Essex crime novel. But David Thorne’s “East of Innocence” is a fresh take on this famous county. Forget Ross Kemp’s gangs and uncover the real middle class crime of this redbrick, tennis playing London suburb. “East of Innocence” is the story of a failed lawyer clinging to the crusts of family and friends while battling to do good in a dark place. David Thorne takes you places you may have been to before. But you will never view them in the same way again.
